April 25, 2007: Peruvian scissors dance
So this guy thinks he's better than you, and he's willing to prove it by sticking rusty metal through his cheek and tongue. Once again the piercing people who get 3 holes in an ear, or one in the nose, are shown to be mere pikers. You can't compete so don't even try. As Zaphod Beeblebrox once said, "I get weirder things than you in my breakfast cereal."
But here's the really weird part. The second half of this display is acrobatic dancing in colorful costumes. How manly and spiritual?

That first dude stole those milk crates from my dorm room circa 1986.

I wonder if it has more roots in Native American ritual or Spanish.

I will never understand this notion of becoming closer to God through pain. If the pain KILLS YOU, then, yes, you will become closer to God. Just close enough to hear Him tell you "You're stupid, go to hell."

I can hear my Mom now..."Don't dance with scissors!"

Have you failed to notice the giver-of-power in the scissor dance?

Meh. You can see the strings.

What kind of dance is the second one doing? Looks like he's dancing with a harp.

You've heard of Harper's Bazaar? This is the bazaar part.

This image reminds me of that song, "That's What Friends Are For."

Some searching on Youtube turns up some videos of the Scissors Dance (where they do in fact dance holding scissors, surprise), but none of the self- and assisted mutilation stuff.
